Welcome to My Blog!

Welcome to my blog!This is my blog about my science fair project, Pointe Shoe Physics. I am testing the amount of force per square centimeter on a ballet dancer's feet while dancing in pointe shoes. I am also studying how this changes in three different positions. Be sure to check out my report, background information, videos and other cool stuff! My final report and other files can be accessed through the "Documents" link on the right. Enjoy!

Problem and Hypothesis

How much force ( in Newtons) per square centimeter is on a dancer's toes in pointe shoes? How does this change when a dancer is standing flat, standing on the ball of their foot, and standing in full-pointe? How does this change when a dancer is standing on one foot?

There will be the most force (in Newtons) on a dancer's foot when they are standing on one foot en pointe. The force will be the least per square centimeter when a dancer is standing flat on two feet.
